    Default Do you have "issues" in your family? How do you deal with them?

    I assume NFs have a harder time dealing with issues, like divorce,etc. Did you ever have any issues in your home- during childhood or later? How did you cope or deal with them?

    Why do you assume this?

    I assume this because we have more sensitive natures and tend to take things personally (e.g. parents fighting.) We also have more intense emotions than others (at least us INFPs.) Therefore it seems logical that we would be affected in a greater way.

    If not, then prove me wrong. Be my guest.

    You're all a bunch of crybabies! I, NT, have spoken! And so it is thus.

    See, I have a irrefutable evidence on my side.

    I tried very hard to be indifferent towards such as much as possible.

    How can a NF cut off or be indifferent to a situation, especially one that's under the same roof. Aren't we wired to take things personally?

    Indeed we are wired like that. However, intervening with the issues that came up in my family would often makes things worse. So unless it affected me directly, I just tuned it out as best I could. It's really all I could do.

    I look at it this way: Even though our parents are our parents, they're still our parents. Despite them being able to 'mentour' us, they are still imperfect, and may/may not be a product of their own environment.

    I look at them as a whole, and once I can really understand them, that is when I can be whatevers with them, and laugh at/with them.

    I think, laughing is important. That's how I deal with it, then keep to myself, engage in things I enjoy, or help out when needed.

    NFs? Maybe. My issues with my parents bother me a lot.
